COVID-19 Update – April 28, 2020

We would like to provide you with an update on the current status of Tsawwassen Optometry Clinic. Although still closed for appointments, we are happy to help with many of your eye care needs.

Please call our office (604-943-6114) for all your eye drops, supplements, contact lenses, and glasses concerns. We are shipping directly, free of charge, to our patients for contact lens orders. We are in the office for any supplement and eye drop pick-ups.

To be added to our waiting list for future appointments with your eye doctor, please call the office or email us at info@tsawwassenoptometry.ca. If you had an appointment booked, we will call to reschedule once the situation has stabilized.

If you have an urgent concern regarding your vision, please contact Dr. Giulia DeVuono at 604-916-5791 and she will assist you or direct your concerns.

If you have an eye emergency and cannot reach Dr. DeVuono, we recommend going to Surrey Memorial Emergency Room, as they have an ophthalmologist on call.

We thank you for your understanding during these uncertain times and will continue to help in any way we can. Our patients remain our number one priority.

COVID-19 Office Closure

Due to the COVID-19 health concern, we are taking measures to ensure the safety of both our patients and staff. We have decided to close our office for non-urgent visits until further notice.

Starting March 20, if you have an urgent concern regarding your vision, eye health, glasses or contact lenses, please contact Dr. Sara Kirby at 778-789-1943 and she will assist you or direct your concerns. Please also call her if you need eye drops, or to order contact lenses. We are able to mail your contact lenses directly to you, and in most cases can deliver eye drops.

If you have an eye emergency and cannot reach Dr. Kirby, we recommend going to Surrey Memorial Emergency Room, as they have an ophthalmologist on call. If you had an appointment booked, we will call to reschedule once the situation has stabilized. Thank you for your understanding.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Flu Protection

The health and safety of our community is always a top priority for us.

We would like to inform you that we are still open to help with all your eye care needs. In consideration of the COVID-19 situation, we are committed to providing a clean and healthy space for both our patients and staff. We are actively monitoring updates and following guidance and recommendations both from provincial health authorities and the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Tsawwassen Optometry Clinic is taking steps to help prevent the spread of any virus and to help protect our patients and staff.

If you have an upcoming appointment and are feeling unwell with symptoms such as fever, difficulty breathing, sore throat, cough, or sneezing; or have been in close contact with someone with these symptoms; or have been travelling abroad less than 14 days ago PLEASE refrain from attending any appointments or accompany any patient to their appointment at our clinic.

Please contact us to let us know if you are unable to attend your appointment.

What we are doing

We have implemented heightened cleaning regimens including the frequent disinfection of frequently touched surfaces.  We have removed both magazines and the toy area from our reception area.  We are regularly keeping up with updates from Health Canada to ensure that we are taking the appropriate precautions as new information becomes available.

What you can do if you are visiting our clinic

If you are visiting Tsawwassen Optometry Clinic, we ask that you help keep the environment as safe as possible for our patients as we have a large number of elderly patients who are at an increase risk of suffering serious effects should they contract COVID-19 or even the common flu.

Upon arriving to our clinic, we ask that you disinfect your hands by using hand sanitizer at the front desk.  Please refrain from touching your face, eyes, nose or mouth.  Please re-sanitize your hands should you accidentally touch your face.  Thank you!

We thank you in advance for your cooperation!
